EUROSOLAR rejects the inclusion of nuclear and natural gas activities in the EU taxonomy for sustainable finance

Should these technologies be accepted as sustainable investments in the EU Taxonomy, they would be eligible for very favorable financing terms. This would be yet another massive obstacle in the efforts to bring about a transition to renewable energies and lessen the likelihood of the catastrophic consequences of abrupt global heating, in Europe and around the globe. The real Green Deal demands clear exit paths from all fossil fuels and nuclear power. Read more here.

Dear friends of EUROSOLAR,

for more than 30 years, EUROSOLAR has been paving the way to the solar age and sees itself as an independent voice to ensure that the transition to renewable energies succeeds in a citizen-oriented and decentralized manner. We have always acted independently of parties, companies and institutions. As a non-profit association, we live from donations and memberships. Only in this way can we continue to provide important impulses and maintain our events such as the European Solar Prize and our conferences. A membership is already possible from 65€ per year (and only 25€ for persons up to 27 years). Especially today, the voice of EUROSOLAR is more important than ever. We are grateful for your support!

Regenerative Earth Decade: 100% Renewables are only the beginning

EUROSOLAR has set up a 10-point plan on how the Renewable Decade with 100% renewable energies can succeed. In this plan, EUROSOLAR calls for a tightening of the European Green Deal, climate neutrality towards 100% renewables, carbon sequestration agriculture, afforestation with drought-resistant forests and the rededication of the European circular economy directives to economy-wide carbon sequestration regulations. The goal must be a climate-positive, emissions-negative Europe by 2030.
